Ivan, Lil Dave and I walked to Bar Pompi on October 13, 2011. Ivan and I each got an espresso. We got two banana and dark chocolate tiramisus. Lil Dave gobbled his up.
Ivan and I enjoyed the tiramisu which didn’t have any coffee flavor.
We got the train to the center of Rome. We did lots of walking and checked out the sites.
We had lunch at Life Ristorante. Lil Dave got banana ravioli. Ivan and I shared square spaghetti with pecorino cheese and pepper and a salad with spinach, cheese, pears, walnuts and honey. The spaghetti was good, but the salad needed more honey.
Ivan said he wanted to take us to somewhere cool. We went to Capuchin Crypt. This crypt contains hundreds of bones and skulls arranged in cool ways. There were lamps and skeletons dressed in robes. It was creepy, but cool at the same time. Pictures aren’t allowed, but Ivan took a few.
We took the train back. We chilled at the apartment.
For dinner, we went to Osteria del Pegno. Ivan and I shared mussels, tagliatelle with seabass and ravioli with cheese, spinach and zucchini flower. Lil Dave got rigatoni with bananas. The food was delicious. The Italians can take a few basic ingredients and create a wonderful pasta dish. We were served a free tasty limonchello after dinner.
Later on, we walked to the Pantheon. There’s a cool fountain outside. Ivan thought we should check out the inside of the Pantheon tomorrow.
We walked to the Trevi Fountain to take a bunch of photos.
Then, we got the train back to the apartment.
